Описание: This is the first volume of a major theoretical work by Patrik Schumacher, which outlines how the discipline of architecture should be understood as its own distinct system of communication. (Autopoeisis comes from the Greek and means literally self-production; it was first adopted in biology in the 1970s to describe the essential characteristics of life as a circular self-organising system and has since been transposed into a theory of social systems and communication.) This new autopoeitic approach offers architecture an arsenal of general comparative concepts. It allows architecture to be understood as a distinct discipline, which can be analysed in elaborate detail while at the same time offering insightful comparisons with other subject areas, such as art, science and political discourse. On the basis of such comparisons the book insists on the necessity of disciplinary autonomy and argues for a sharp demarcation from both art and engineering. Schumacher accordingly argues controversially that design intelligence and architecture as a discipline has its own its own internal logic.
Описание: The second volume of a major work outlining how architecture can be understood as a form of communication, this book addresses the major challenges facing architects today. Looking specifically at how architecture seeks to organize and articulate the complexity of post-fordist network society through its language and structure, it explicitly addresses how current architecture can upgrade its design methodology in the face of an increasingly demanding environment. The book explores the role of architecture within contemporary society and its relationship with politics, making it a must-read for architects and architecture students alike.

Автор: Anderson, jr. Название: Roman Architecture in Provence ISBN: 0521825202 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521825207 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 6973 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: This book provides a survey of the architecture and urbanism of Provence during the Roman era. Provence, or 'Gallia Narbonensis' as the Romans called it, was one of the earliest Roman colonies in Western Europe. In this book, James C. Anderson, jr. examines the layout and planning of towns in the region, both those founded by the Romans and those redeveloped from native settlements. He provides an in-depth study of the chronology, dating and remains of every type of Roman building for which there is evidence in Provence. The stamp of Roman civilization is apparent today in such cities as Orange, Nimes and Arles, where spectacular remains of bridges, theaters, fora and temples attest to the sophisticated civilization that existed in this area during the imperial period and late antiquity. This book focuses on the remains of buildings that can still be seen, exploring decorative elements and their influence from Rome and local traditions, as well as their functions within the urban environment.
Описание: Contemporary architectural theory emphasizes the importance of ‘tectonics’, the term used to articulate the relationship between construction, structure and architectural expression. Despite the term’s currency, little consideration has been given to its origins or historical significance. In this study, Werner Oechslin examines the attempts by early modern theoreticians of architecture to grapple with the relationship between appearance and essence, which is crucial to the discourse of tectonics. Referring to the writings of Joseph Lux, Karl Botticher, and Adolf Loos, Oechslin follows this development from theories of a classical architecture without columnar orders to a Modern architecture upholding the ‘truth’of its own architectural expression. Oechslin locates the culmination of this discourse in the work of Adolf Loos and in Le Corbusier’s frequent references to Ancient Greece as the precedent of Modern architecture’s honesty. This volume includes an anthology of primary texts by several theorists published in English for the first time.
